Pet insurance providers have a duty to protect their policyholders from premium increases that would otherwise become unsustainable by including condition limits and caps on variable charges. The costs vets can charge for items such as medication can vary significantly from one practice to the next, as there is no current regulation of these charges.

Therefore, by limiting the mark-up on medication wholesale or manufacturer costs up to a maximum of 100%, we are able to have some control over the impact to our policyholders and the premiums we charge. We also encourage our customers to shop around for medication items, as these can often be found cheaper – for example through online medication providers.
